Mounting Throwover Saddlebags
Im getting ready for a trip down to Gulfport Mississippi this summer and one of the items on my list to buy is a set of saddlebags. I borrowed my buddy's Saddlemen Highwayman bags, large, to use as a gauge for what size bags to get and couldnt get them to mount. The bags themselves were just fine: I could probably even go a size larger. However, whenever I threw them over the frame and tried to put the seat back on, the seat pushed on the yoke and forced the bags to tilt down. I tried adjusting the yoke, turning the bags around backwards... everthing I could think of to get them to fit without sliding but the seat kept interfering.
Can those of you with throwover bags post pictures of how you mounted them under the seat? I need to get my bags ordered soon and a little guidance would really help.
